About Linux From Scratch
About the Linux From Scratch 6.2

Linux From Scratch (LFS) is a project that provides you with the steps necessary to build your own custom Linux system. There are a lot of reasons why somebody would want to install an LFS system. The question most people raise is "why go through all the hassle of manually installing a Linux system from scratch when you can just download an existing distribution like Debian or Redhat". That is a valid question which I hope to answer for you. The most important reason for LFS's existence is teaching people how a Linux system works internally. Building an LFS system teaches you about all that makes Linux tick, how things work together, and depend on each other. And most importantly, how to customize it to your own taste and needs.



Releases:
2008-11-25 00:00:00.0 Linux From Scratch 6.4 has been released    View
The Linux From Scratch community is pleased to announce the release of LFS version 6.4. This release includes numerous changes to LFS 6.3, including update to Linux kernel 2.6.27.4, GCC 4.3.2, glibc 2.8, and security fixes. It also includes a large amount of editorial work on the explanatory material throughout the book, improving both the clarity and accuracy of the text.
2008-08-29 00:00:00.0 Beyond Linux From Scratch 6.3 has been released    View
BLFS version 6.3 is the complement to the LFS 6.3 book. It has been 18 months since the last release of BLFS and almost 12 months since LFS-6.3 was released. Though we would like to release BLFS versions as quickly as possible after an LFS release, this version lagged a bit due to Editor inactivity. However, early on in 2008 several new Editors were brought on board which helped stimulate a flurry of activity. Many new packages have been introduced in the 6.3 version, as well as many updates, refinements and additions to the existing packages.
